What’s black and white and cute all over? Join the Saginaw Children’s Zoo as we celebrate World Penguin Day!

Penguins are some of the most beloved animals in zoos and aquariums, and are an important component of our ecological world. There are currently 17 different species of penguins — the largest being the emperor penguin, weighing nearly 80 pounds, and the smallest being the little blue or “fairy” penguin, weighing only around 2 pounds.

Don your finest penguin-inspired clothing on this day to draw attention to the plight of wild penguins.

The first 100 visitors clad in black and white clothing will receive a plush penguin toy!
